"Hot

Summer:

Chicago

Riots Highlight

Tension

Associated Press News Analysis
CHICAGO - The crackle of
flames and gunfire had subsided
on Chicago's heavily Negro West
Side. But a somber Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. was listening to
rumblings of racial storms building
elsewhere.
"I hate to make this prediction,"
said King, rubbing his face, fag-
gard from lack of sleep. "But we
have to be honest, Every major
city is sitting on a powder keg."
King was not alone in his as-
sessment that violence might erupt
in the hot summer nights in any
one of a dozen or more cities.
"Because no matter what they
tell you, everything is not okay in
colored town," said a Negro at-
torney in another city.

The remark was made by Alcee
Hasting who doesn't live in Chi-
cago or New York or Los Angeles.
He lives in Pompano Beach, Fla.,
where rioting bands of Negroes
battled police less than one month
ago.
Similar fears were expressed by
many Negroes in other areas, As-
sociated Press interviewers found.
Giving weight to such fears were
recent outbreaks of violence in
such widely separated places as
Omaha, Neb., Cleveland, Ohio, and
Cordele, Ga.
Hundreds of Negro teen-agers
rioted the night of April 11 at a
park in Glen Echo, Md., only 10
miles from the White House, and
left a trail of property damage
and terrified residents on a march
home.

Summer arrived officially June
21. The night of June 22, looting
and vandalism broke out in an
East Cleveland area where Negro
and white neighborhoods meet.
Bands of Negro youths stoned cars
occupied by whites.
A 10-year-old Negro boy was
wounded when a white man open-
ed fire with a pistol from a pass-
ing car.
Whites and Negroes staged a
gunbattle the night of June 28 in
Cordele, Ga. The July 4 weekend,
brought violent disorders for three
nights in Omaha's predominantly
Negro near North Side; it ended
with National Guardsmen clear-
ing the streets.
In Des Moines, Iowa, about 200
young Negroes hurled stones and
bottles at policemen answering a

call at a park July 4. Three days
later, a hundred helmeted police-
men in Paterson, N.J., quelled a
missile-throwing outbreak that
followed a "black power" speech
by a Negro leader.
Last Saturday a brief, fiery out-
burst resulted in San Francisco
when an off-duty Negro policeman
shot and wounded a Negro charged
with armed robbery. Negroes set
seven fires with gasoline bombs
and a white ambulance driver was
attacked but not hurt seriously.
Why?
Why the violence?
In a realm where answers are
not easy, factors cited range from
simple things like hot weather,
vandalism, resentment of police,
idleness and malicious mischief
to more sophisticated explanations

of frustration, repressed hopes, in-
security, racial discrimination and
disillusionment.
But even before Chicago's out-
break, civil rights figures warned
of the unrest and tensions.
"We cannot ignore that we have
new human tensions. A great deal
of bitterness has developed," Dr.
J. H. Jackson of Chicago, presi-
dent of the predominantly Negro
National Baptist Association, has
said.
A view widely held by civil
rights leaders is that the federal
government's antipoverty program
offered hopes it has failed to de-
liver.
This "aborted promise" threat-
ens the nation with unrest, said
Dr. Robert W. Spike, a University

of Chicago theologian, in a speech
at St. Louis.
James Farmer, former national
director of the Congress of Racial
Equality, assessed it this way:
"Another broken promise to the
millions outside the mainstream."
Mayor A. V. Sorenson of Omaha
talked with a hundred Negro
youths after the disorders in his
city. He blamed "frustration, ten-
sion, discontent, a desire to be
recognized, a desire to have all of
the nice things all affluent Ameri-
cans have. These kids are sick,
disgusted and frustrated."
Solutions
Solutions do not come easy,
Negro spokesmen agree. But most
say any concrete, immediate ac-
tion-new swimming pools for

Chicago's West Side. or jobs for
200 Negro youths in Omaha-
will significantly aid in soothing
unrest.
King has been grappling with
the problem of how to channel
Negro youth gangs into construc-
tive, nonviolent work.
"We've got to find something
they specifically can do." he said.
William Booth, chairman of the
New York City Commission on
Human Rights, warned that a
"Watts syndrome" exists in the
United States. He said federal,
state and local authorities have
not yet hit the reality of the

problem.
"They should
community and
has to be done,"

OFFICIAL BULLETIN

U.S. Warns
Hanoi Not To
Try Pilots
Goldberg Threatens
'Dire Consequences'
To North Viet Namn
GENEVA (I)-The United States
informed the International Red
Cross yesterday that trials of
American airmen capturedin
North Viet Nam could lead to
"disastrous consequences."
The warning was delivered by
U.S. Ambassador Arthur J. Gold-
berg to the all-Swiss International
Red Cross Committee based in
Geneva, which administers the
Geneva conventions for protection
of war prisoners. Goldberg, U.S.
chief delegate to the United Na-
tions, is here for a UN space con-
ference.
"I informed the Red Cross that
in the view of the U.S. govern-
ment there can be no doubt that
the Geneva conventions on the
treatment of prisoners of war
fully apply to the Viet Nam con-
flict," he told reporters.
The North Vietnamese govern-
ment has threatened to bring the
airmen to trial as war criminals.
In Moscow, Premier Alexei N.
Kosygin rejected a request by
Prime Minister Harold Wilson of
Britain to intercede at Hanoi on
behalf of the prisoners.
In New Delhi, India, North Viet
Nam's consul-General, Nguyen
Hoa, told Indian newsmen Hanoi
has the legal right to bring the
Americans to trial under what he
called the "Nuernberg Charter,"
apparently referring to the post-
World War II trials in which the
United States and her Allies tried
and executed Nazis convicted of
war crimes.
He said that under Article 8 of
that charter the captives are sub-
ject to North Viet Nam's laws and
could be brought to trial. He told
the Indian newsmen, however'
that any American who confessed
to being a war criminal will be
given humanitarian treatment.
Hanoi has reported "confessions"
by some of the Americans held
there.
Official Concern
He declined to reveal to news-
men the contents of the note but
said it expressed particular con-
cern "at the disastrous conse-
quenrces which could flow if North
Viet Nam officials should proceed
with any trials of these prisoners,
in contradiction of the Geneva
conventions."
Informed sources said the com-
mittee's executive director, Roger
Gallopin, who received Goldberg
in the absence of the committee
president, Samual Gonard, took
note of the message without spe-
cific comment. Goldberg is sched-
uled to meet with Gonard at the
Red Cross headquarters today.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (P-
By an 8-7 vote, the world court
dismissed yesterday a costly six-
year suit by black African nations
to break white-ruled South Af-
rica's control of diamond-rich
South-West Africa.
The verdict by the International
Court of Justice, delivered in a
courtroom packed with a select
audience of diplomats and lawyers
from many nations, came as a sur-
prise to both sides.
In effect, the court ruled that
the suing nations-Liberia and
Ethopia-had no legal right to
bring the suit. Thus the case was
thrown out without an actual de-
cision on charges of South African.

World News Roundup

Government Measures
Wilson will announce the gov-
ernment's measures in Parliament
tomorrow - a week earlier than
4 originally planned. That evening
he is to make a television broad-
cast to the nation on the gravity
of its economic position.
James Callaghan, chancellor of
the exchequer, who is due in
Bonn, Germany, tomorrow for
talks on Britain's defense expen-
diture in West Germany, will de-
lay his departure until after Wil-
son has spoken in the House of
Commons.
The price of gold -- a hedge in
times of economic trouble-rose on
the London bullion market yester-
day to 252 shillings 53/4 pence
dollar parity rate: $35.1825 per
fine ounce, the highest since Jan.
30, 1961.
In the foreign exchange market,
the dollar price of sterling open-
ed slightly above Friday's clos-
ing level but it soon fell away.
The volume of selling pounds was
not heavy but in the prevailing,
' crisis atmosphere the sale of even
$1.4 million was enough to bring
the rate down fractionally.
The Bank of England was sup-
porting sterling by raiding gold
and dollar reserves to buy pounds
for future delivery-which could
make the reserves look very sick
if this month's total is revealed
in full when the treasury reports'
in two weeks.
Index Drops
The Financial Times index of 30
leading industrial stocks tumbled
6.7 points during the morning to
331.1-a new low for the year. Be-
T' fore the long slide began June 3,
the index had reached 372.2. The
index at yesterday's closing was
332.3, down 5.5 for the day.
Within 72 hours, the Labor gov-
ernment may know whether its
efforts to raise taxes, slow down
industry and divert it to exports,
to boost employment and cut gov-
ernment spending at home and
overseas have restored sufficient
international confidence to steady
the pound on the world's money
markets.

:I LImI

The majority-with the court,
president, Sir Percy Spender of
Australia, casting the deciding'
vote-ruled that Liberia and Ethi-
opia had no right to bring this suit
against the mandate power merely
as individual members of the for-
mer League of Nations. Such ac-
tion could only be brought by the
League of Nations Council-which
no longer exists.
"Rights cannot be presumed to
exist merely because it might seem
desirable that they should," said
Sir Percy who took two hours to
read the majority opinion.
U.S. Dissent
Ones of the seven dissenting
judges was the court's United
States member, Philip C. Jessup.
Another dissenter was Nationalist
China's Dr. Wellington Koo.

WASHINGTON-President John-
son signed a pay raise yesterday
for 1.8 million civilian government
workers-by 3.2 per cent, includ-
ing fringe benefits--but express-
ed concern because Congress made
the, increase effective July 1 in-
stead of next Jan. 1.
The increases in money average
2.9 per cent or a total of $540
million on an annual basis.
The civilian pay bill controls
the effective date of the higher
military pay Johnson signed last
week. Together the extra cost will
be almost $500 million in military
and civilian pay between now and
next Jan. 1.
LONDON-Red China has offer-
ed territorial sanctuary to North
Vietnamese forces fighting the
Americans, according to reports
reaching British authorities yes-
terday.
As understood here, Peking's of-
fer would allow North Vietnamese
air units to use Chinese terri-
tory as a base area from which
presumably they could attack
American raiders. Ground units
also would be permitted to estab-
lish a logistics base free from at-
tacks by American bombers.
WASHINGTON - Vice-Presi-
dent Hubert H. Humphrey called
yesterday for full integration of
the nation's schools as part of
overhauling the country's educa-
tional programs.
"The national goal," he said,
must be "both quality and equal-
ity in our schools."
Humphrey made his remarks in
a speech at the conference on ed-
ucation of the disadvantaged.
jcf:

He noted that, particularly in
the large cities, economic factors
and the movement of families to
suburbs "are creating serious ra-
cial imbalance in the inner city
schools."
The vice-president said seven
millionbdeprived children already
have been reached with special
programs under the 1965 Elemen-
tary and Secondary Education Act.
But he said much room for im-
provement remains.

BRASILIA, Brazil - President
Zalman Shazar of Israel propos-
ed last night a good neighbor
policy for his country and the
Arab states. He suggested they
sit down at the negotiating table
to settle their differences with
Israel.
"We are always ready to share
with our near and distant neigh-
bors the fruits of good neighbor-
liness," Shazar told a Brazilian
dinner audience.

Some South Africans in the
courtroom, joyous at the verdict,
said they had expected to lose the
decision.
American lawyer Ernest Gross,
who led the plaintiffs' legal bat-
tery, expressed disappointment at
the decision.
He told newsmen: "The attitude
of the United Nations will not be
affected by today's decision. The
United Nations shows year after
year that it is opposed to what is
happening in South-West Africa
while it is under South Africa's
control. And' this issue will be
brought up again and again in
the United Nations."
They declared that South Afri-
ca must account to the United
Nations as successor to the old
League of Nations. They also
charged that South Africa, by im-
posing its domestic policy of racial
segregation on South-West Africa
was violating its mandate obliga-
tions and human rights.
